Certificate Vignette


The Vulcan Mining Company, had location 98, in Ontonagon county, from the War Department, and begun work in 1848, in the spring of which year a cave occupied by porcupines was found to be an ancient mine-opening left by prehistoric workmen. Stone hammers, axes, etc., were discovered where the miners had plied their calling.

The Vulcan Mining Co is listed as obsolete in the Mines Handbook, 1918. It notes, “Operated, 1848, on War Dept. lease No. 98, in Ontonagon Co, Mich.” Lawton (1888, p. 94-98) describes two mines with the name Vulcan located in the Menominee Range. However, from his write-ups, it appears production in this district did not begin until the late 1870’s.
